I mean, It's one of the weaker ones on Polka Party, but at least it's not Toothless People :oo . I got used to it (Here's Johnny.) Anybody else?

I love that song. In fact, it's probably my second favorite parody on the album (first is LWAH). I think a lot of people overlook that song because it is one of his few songs from the 80s that doesn't hold up that well over time. You really have to have seen the old Tonight Show with Johnny and Ed to get most of the jokes in the song. It also helps if you've seen "Short Circuit" many many times like I have! :D

Personally I don't like this song. Cause it's kind of an annoying song. And one of the only ones that I skip over.

There are two "L"s in "personally, an apostrophe in "don't," and an "N" in "an." :D

I love Here's Johnny! It's been one of my favorites since I got Polka Party. I would say it's probably my third favorite on the album (after [email protected] and LWAH). I agree with BTD that most people overlook it because it didn't stand the test of time, but I think part of that is because everyone has forgotten the original song. I had no idea it was a parody until a few years ago (thanks Scotti Bros. for being cheap :censored: and not issuing any liner notes). Anyway, Here's Johnny is highly underrated, and well-deserving of a spot on PR:AITB.

To be honest, and I will probably get in trouble for saying it. But its odd to hear Al singing about Ed McMahon. Believe me I know Al isn't gay. But if a non-Al fan heard that song. I think that they would get the wrong impression.

Just because he says, "You know I love him"? He doesn't mean it in a sexual way. You'd have to be pretty ignorant if you think about the song that way.

You dont get my point. Just listen to the song. And like I said I know Al isnt gay. So please dont call me stupid. That's flaming. All I'm saying is that its a odd song that's all. Ok?
